Sicily, ItalyCalabretta Etna Rosso 2001 comes from a seven-hectare vineyard on the slopes of Mount Etna. Average age of the vineyards is between 60-80 years with some plants over 100 years old, some ungrafted--on original root stock. This vintage is a blend of nerello mascalese and nerello cappuccio. The winery practices organic farming in black volcanic, stony soil at an elevation of 750 meters.Calabretta Etna Rosso is deep ruby in color with medium-full body. It shows rich flavors of black fruit with the depth and complexity of an aged Barolo. The wine was aged in large Slavonian oak casks (50-70HL) for 36-42 months. Impressively long and velvety on the finish.Enjoy Calabretta Etna Rosso over the next 6-8 years with osso bucco, lasagna, grilled meats and aged cheeses.

From a third generation winemaker, this complex red wine is based on nerello mascalese and nerello cappuccio - the two principal grapes of Mount Etna red wines. Dried fruit, cranberries and spice carry from nose to palate and end with rusty, dark minerals. It’s drinking amazingly well and is quite a find for an older Italian wine.

From third generation winemaker this organic blend of mostly nerello mascalese and a little nerello cappuccino sees only old oak. Dried fruit, cranberries and spice carry from nose to palate with an end of rusty minerals. It’s drinking amazing.

Hailing from Mt Etna, where ashy, volcanic soils ascribe themselves to the wines, this polished rosato demonstrates freshness even after ageing 10 yrs. From Nerelo Mascalese and Nereolo Cappuccio you will find rusty cherries, some liquroice notes and a wine ready to pair with rustic olive pizza.
